16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.(KJV)

1. ‘Twas on that dark, that doleful night 
When powers of earth and hell arose 
Against the Son of God’s delight 
And friends betrayed Him to His foes. 

2. Before the mournful scene began, 
He took the bread and blessed and brake. 
What love through all His actions ran! 
What wondrous words of grace He spake! 

3. “This Is My body, broke for sin; 
Receive and eat the living food”; 
Then took the cup and blessed the wine: 
“‘Tis the new covenant in My blood.” 

4. “Do this,” He said, “till time shall end, 
In memory of your dying Friend. 
Meet at My table and record 
The love of your departed Lord.” 

5. Jesus, Thy feast we celebrate; 
We show Thy death, we sing Thy name, 
Till Thou return and we shall eat 
The marriage supper of the Lamb.
